Think smart and save with these tips. . .

REDO YOUR CV: Need a hand with an up-to-date CV? Visit reed.co.uk/career-advice for great advice and a free CV template. Or sign up at the free Canva.com site, which has some great modern resume templates to try.

READ ALL ABOUT IT: Visit our Sunemployment pages, to be the first to know about all the latest job offers. See jobs.thesun.co.uk for up-to-the-minute vacancies.

GET SMART: Since most interviews take place virtually, you don’t need to buy a lot to look smart on camera. Timpsons dry cleaners will dry clean an interview outfit for free if you are unemployed.

Just walk into their store and chat with their staff. If you need a new shirt, head to vouchercodes.co.uk/tmlewin.co.uk to enjoy free delivery on all orders through March 31.

IMPROVE YOUR SKILLS: Coursera.org offers a wide range of free courses.

COOL VIDEO: To look your best during an interview on camera, the right lighting is essential. One way to look professional is to get a ring light – you can buy one from Wowcher for just £7.99, down from £29.99! To get by on the cheap, place your laptop in front of a table or desk lamp, or sit near natural light.

TRAVEL TIPS: If you need to use public transport to get to a face-to-face interview, talk to your train operator.

Most have a Way To Work scheme, such as West Midlands trains, which offer up to six days of travel vouchers for interviews and up to three months of free train travel to a new job, job placement or internships , depending on your situation. Check your local train operator’s website to see if you qualify.
